Balance Exercises Aid Idiopathic Scoliosis

Recently, a study was done to look at how balance exercises help with idiopathic scoliosis. Many times as scoliosis progresses, the upper back becomes bent forward. With the upper part of the trunk forward, the body’s balance point is displaced forward resulting in poor balance and an increase in falls. Balance exercises and balance training can help with these issues as seen in a new study by Byl N.N., Holland S., Jurek A. and Hu S.S. in the report: Postural imbalance and vibratory sensitivity in patients with idiopathic scoliosis.

  Balance Exercises For Scoliosis Conditions

Balance exercises were researched for people with scoliosis and balance problems. OBJECTIVES: Sporadic research reports of decreased proprioception and balance problems have been reported in subjects with idiopathic scoliosis, yet these sensory motor deficits have not been addressed in conservative clinical management programs. The purpose of this study was to compare both balance reactions and vibratory sensitivity (as an estimate of proprioception) in patients with idiopathic scoliosis. The findings suggest there may be problems with postural righting in patients with idiopathic scoliosis, particularly when the balance task challenges the vestibular pathways. Given that curves can continue to progress even into the adult years, improving the ability to right the body with gravity could help maintain the balance of the spine despite structural asymmetry.
